About The Wine
To be a pioneer takes courage and conviction. It takes belief and passion. And it takes some good "Comrades" to help along the journey.
It took all of these things to create this wonderful Nero d'Avola at Eldorado Road. Paul and Laurie spotted the potential for the variety on their block of land in the foothills of Beechworth and took the punt to plant and champion this variety in the region. The gamble is paying off.
This is Nero with power. The presence and weight, the firmness of the tannin and the richness of the fruit in this wine are remarkable given the age of this vineyard.
Their dedication to this variety is nothing short of astounding and the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into can be felt in every sip. Hold onto your hats, this Sicilian has some swagger!
About Eldorado Road
Eldorado Road is one of Northern Victoria's hidden wine gems.
Paul Dahlenburg (Bear) and Lauretta Schulz (Laurie) are the two passionate vignerons behind this label.
After taking control of an impossibly old Glenrowan vineyard planted to Shiraz that they have brought back to life, the two have planted small parcels of Durif and Nero d'Avola on their property, believing that their unique terroir between Beechworth and Wangaratta is perfectly suited to produce powerful yet elegant expressions of these varieties.
The critical acclaim for these wines is flooding in. It's only early days for Bear and Laurie in their own operation, but Eldorado Road is definitely a producer to watch.
